Build a better Bookcase

Not long ago, I blogged about a coffee table that included cut-outs customized to fit a selection of the owners books.  Cool, yes, but I wasn’t sure how practical it would be since drinks have a tendency to be placed on, and spilled on, coffee tables world wide.

But here is a bookcase with a similar design.  Apparently the crafter in question came up with this design after seeing a $1400 Anthropologie bookcase with a similar design.  $1400?   Maybe I should be creating things to put books in vs the actual books themselves?  Either way, I really like her bookcase much more so than the Anthropologie version.  I may have to give this a whirl for some of my great-grandmother’s books.
